Skip the Black Friday crowds, and hunker down with a book instead

If you’re like me, braving jam-packed stores in search of Black Friday deals ranks just below plucking your eyelashes out with rusty pliers, whilst bathing in a vat of boiling jalapeño juice.

Hands down, I would rather be alone with a book.

And don’t forget the music.

And pajamas.

I’m spending today out hiking with my boys—which is equally awesome—but tonight’s plans involve copious amounts of reading + music + pajamas.

Ahh, bliss. 🙂

For those of you who have similar Black Friday plans, it would be a huge honor to earn a spot on your e-reader today.  If you haven’t heard about Spectral Tales, a young adult anthology of eight ghost stories, you can download it for free today.  I am so fortunate to join this awesome group of authors in putting this collection together.

Eight Uber-Awesome YA Paranormal Stories, All in One Spiffy Package

I’m so thrilled to announce the release of a fantastic new YA paranormal short story anthology!  I have the honor and privilege of standing among a wonderful group of eight YA authors in presenting our new release, Spectral Tales:Spectral Tales Cover

Whether they are spirits of the departed or figments of an overactive imagination, ghosts are a staple in fiction. Storytellers have portrayed ghosts as scary, friendly, or annoying across many genres. Now, eight authors offer their own interpretations of ghosts through a collection of short stories that will appeal to fans of horror, fantasy, or young adult fiction.

“Deathwatch” by Katie French – Teenage sisters Charlotte and Georgie stumble into a robbery, and their normal life gets flipped upside down. Worse, when the clerk kills one of the robbers, his face is covered in a supernatural swarm of bugs. Charlotte must be hallucinating. It’s the only explanation for the terrible things she’s seen. Everyone calls the clerk a hometown hero, but Charlotte’s not so sure. Then a dead girl appears in her mirror with clues to the truth, and Charlotte learns there’s more horror to this world than she ever expected.

“Tides” by Sarah Dalton – Andrea wakes with sand on her feet. She is sleepwalking down to the sea every night, but remembers little more than a vague recollection of a boy who lives on the beach. With an absent father and a mother who would rather walk along the coast than look after her daughter, Andrea struggles to get by. She’s haunted, but from a memory, or a spirit?

“Shadowspirit” by M.A. George – On a good day, Henta Mourngard is stalked by dreadspirits and netherphantoms, a living magnet for creatures of the afterlife. On a bad day, she finds herself communing with a demon of the underworld—worse yet, interrogating one—in a desperate attempt to track down the shadowspirit who has been her guide since infancy. Demons don’t take kindly to interrogation. And the search for a missing shadowspirit leads to places the living daren’t tread (lest they no longer qualify as living). ‘Tis unfortunate for Henta that today is not a “good day”.

“The Little Girl” by Jamie Campbell – Sixteen-year-old Penny is moving house… again. Starting out in a small town, she is hopeful this time will be the last. As long as the little girl doesn’t follow her, she will be rid of her past hauntings. The only problem is, the little girl won’t let her go and now she is about to grow stronger than ever before.

“The Ghost Below” by Ariele Sieling – White Rabbit gets sent to run cables in the bowels of the spaceship as a punishment. While working, she discovers that the ship’s ghost might be more than he seems.

“Slave Runner” by H.S. Stone – Malika and her sister are captured by slave traders but receive an unexpected gift of freedom when their captors encounter a deadly gathering of ghosts. The sisters escape to a nearby village, where they learn that the new sanctuary isn’t as safe as they thought it would be, and ghosts aren’t what they most need to fear.

“Farewell Ohana (A Ghostly Mini-Wave)” by Sutton Shields – Maile Lahela is under attack by someone in the Kauai Camp for the Curiously Creepy. When she awakens one morning unable to see, her peculiar, yet loyal friends decide it’s time to escape the institution—something that’s never been done. But before they can leave, Maile has a mission of her own…one that could cost them their lives. Farewell Ohana is a short, fun-filled, emotional prequel to the events occurring in Overfalls, Wave Two of The Merworld Water Wars series by Sutton Shields.

“Ghost Girl” by Susan Fodor – Zoey Saunders has her future mapped out, but an accident brings her life to an untimely end. In her new state of being, Zoey feels compelled to seek justice for her death and bring healing to her family who have become a shadow of their former selves. But what constitutes justice and will getting even ever be enough to replace the life she lost?

You can get Spectral Tales for free-eee-ee at any of these retailers:
